Help us build a bigger brewing system: Our Kickstarter project
August 19, 2014
A “Kickstarter” project is kind of like one of the pledge drives which you may remember from watching public television. The differences are: a Kickstarter is less annoying because we don’t interrupt what you’re doing, and the rewards are something that you really, really care about, maybe more than that Ken Burns documentary you were watching.
Here’s the way it works. People donate/pledge/give money to our project in exchange for a nice reward, like a shirt, sticker, keg fridge, or chance to brew a custom beer and have it served at the brewery. If we meet or exceed our goal, we get to keep the money raised and put it toward building a bigger brewing system, and we’ll send out all those awesome rewards. If we don’t meet the goal, the whole thing goes down in flames, so if you buy in and help us out, tell your friends to do it too.
We chose to do this project because we think there are a lot of people in the Moorhead and Fargo communities that want to see local breweries succeed. More importantly, we want people in our community to feel like they’re a part of the brewery, and helping out is one of the best way to make friends!
